This is probably a silly post and more of a thinking out loud situation, but here I am. I have a pretty old laptop - Late 2006 (bought early '07) Intel C2D 2.0 GHz White MacBook 500 GB 7200rpm HD (originally 80 GB 5400rpm) 1 GB 667 MHz RAM Running OS X 10.5.8 Just wondering whether or not it would be worth upgrading to 4 GB RAM from OWC/some reseller or not. Would it boost performance enough to be worth the $60-65 investment? At minimum, I'd like my laptop to last another 10 months. Ideally, I'd be able to squeak through 2012 with it. Really looking to hold off until Ivy Bridge CPUs and/or the Ultrabook market matures to purchase a new computer (most certainly a laptop). I just graduated from college and am working full time, but not necessarily making a load of money, so I can't jump on a new machine just yet. Part of me just worries about my laptop blowing up on me before I can make the investment worth the (slight financial) hassle.
